Vigneault hired as Flyers coach

Tied for 12th on NHL all-time wins list; has led Rangers, Canucks to Cup Final






Alain Vigneault was hired as coach of the Philadelphia Flyers on Monday.


"It is an honor to be selected as the next head coach of the Flyers," Vigneault said. "The history they have established and the passionate fan base has made this a first-class franchise. I am excited to work with Chuck (Fletcher, general manager), the talented group of players and prospects coming up through the system, in order to return Philadelphia to the top of the NHL landscape."


Said Fletcher: "We are extremely excited to have Alain join this franchise and lead our team behind the bench for many years to come. He brings a tremendous amount of success over an extended period of time that will prove valuable to our team to take the next steps in returning the winning culture to the Philadelphia Flyers organization."


More to come.

Really thought he'd have some longevity with us but frankly he was out coached in the playoffs, didnt seem to know how to make in game adjustments so well and the obvious knock on developing talent.


that being said he was one hell of a gentlemen and given some of the league recycles, he deserves another kick at the can.
